Kate makes superb remarks on Pakistan in an interview

Britain's Prince William and his wife Kate left Pakistan on Friday after visiting an army dog training school, a day after a severe thunderstorm forced them to change their schedule and stay the night in Lahore.

According to royal sources, the duchess was particularly keen to return to the organisation, which provides support to more than 150 orphans in boarding houses.

Pakistan's government hopes the couple's four-day visit will help boost the country's image as a tourist and business destination, after decades of sectarian violence and political unrest. "It's like an arm wrapped around you", the duke said.

"I am passionate about giving young children the best possible start in life and this SOS village is doing just that", she explained. "What's great is that you have both here".

Sharing a series of photographs from her trip to Pakistan with husband William, Kate drew global attention to the SOS Village, a children's project in the Lahore region.

Discussing the trip to the village, Kate said "William and I really wanted to come and see an SOS Children's Village like this". The royal couple returned to the United Kingdom on Friday after a five-day visit to the country.


The royal couple also interacted with the children at the charity during an impromptu game of cricket, during which William, 37, whacked a shot that landed on wife Kate's neck. Adding, "What you're all doing is unbelievable and you've got two ambassadors in us".

Upon realizing their extended stay in the city, Kate asked aides if they could factor in another visit to SOS Village because it had such an effect on her. "In the west, we don't really focus on the emotional support".

As a woman is heard saying "enjoy", the duchess replies "thank you so much, we'll see you there" before the video cuts to highlights of the tour.

They even received friendship bracelets made by the little ones, a pink one for the Duchess of Cambridge and a blue one for Prince William. "I won't take it off", he reportedly responded to the gesture.

"That nurturing of this place really comes through", William said during the visit - per E! She said she was "so glad we came back to get the full picture".
